Product description

Product Description

Good Heart interweaves the stories of a Jewish family and a Christian family over three generations. Bobby Langford and Danny Baranson lead classic American childhoods together in small-town Indiana in the 1960s and 70s. But any notion that these boys lives are run-of-the-mill is dispelled when we flash back to the family histories that led them there. As we follow Bobby and Danny's lives through adulthood, characters from vastly different backgrounds are pulled together by twists of destiny, drawing them all to one special place: the land of Israel.
Good Heart is embedded with gems of Israel's history and culture, giving nuanced insights through tangible human stories. From an Israeli army base to an Indiana evangelical church, from World War II Austria to the Sudanese desert, exotic locales pepper this adventure with the ultimate discovery that even those who seem worlds apart are all interconnected.

About the Author

Alan Newman is a pro-Israel activist and retired from a career in financial services. He was born in rural Pennsylvania in 1944. He attended Pennsylvania State University and New York University, graduating with degrees in aerospace engineering and business. He holds several US patents. He retired to West Palm Beach, Florida in 2005.

Mr. Newman's philanthropic and pro-Israel activities include AIPAC's National Council and board positions at American Friends of Ben-Gurion University, Friends of the Ethiopian National Project, and Jewish Family Services.

Alan's wife Phylis is a Jewish educator and a volunteer to help children and adults with special needs. They have two sons, Jonathan and Evan, who are both pro-Israel activists, and two grandsons. Their worldwide travel has included sixteen trips to Israel.
